Super Mario Odyssey mod adds in a Super Mario 3D World stage

Cat Mario lives on

I truly enjoyed Super Mario 3D World. It saddens me that the game didn't get more attention due to it being on Wii U, but at least some fans are helping it live on. A recent mod for Super Mario Odyssey digs into the Super Mario 3D World universe to help give it a new lease on life! Check out the video above to see how Super Mario 3D World plays out in Super Mario Odyssey.

Thanks to CM30 for the heads up!

Super Mario Odyssey load-time comparison

Get into the action quicker

Just as with Zelda: Breath of the Wild, we heard that Super Mario Odyssey saw decreased loading times after its VR update. It appears this has something to do with the update to Super Mario Odyssey, as well as the Switch's update to Version 8.0.1 overall. Check out the comparison video above to see just how much speedier things are.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild's Labo VR update speeds up loading times, may have done the same in Super Mario Odyssey

You don't need Labo to enjoy these changes

Both The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey received updates a couple days back. These updates added in support for Nintendo Labo VR, but it appears there have been some other tweaks as well. With Zelda: Breath of the Wild, it's been confirmed that loading times for the game have been sped up. In some cases, the game loads a full 5 seconds faster than it did previously.

There are also reports of Super Mario Odyssey loading faster with its VR update as well, but we don't have the video proof like we do for Zelda above. If the update managed to decrease loading times for Zelda, it's not hard to imagine the same was done for Odyssey.

Super Mario Odyssey's VR update lets you zoom in on the action

You following me, camera guy?

Here's a neat feature being added to Super Mario Odyssey via the VR update. In the new VR content, you'll be able to hit the R button to zoom in on the action. This will help you get a better look during gameplay, and can also be used just to enjoy the scenery!

A new way to experience these worlds is coming!

Soon the Toy-Con VR Goggles from the Nintendo Labo: VR Kit will allow you to enjoy simple, fun bonus experiences for two of the most popular Nintendo Switch games in a whole new way!

Super Mario Odyssey's VR update will include more hidden Cat Mario sprites

Where are you, Mario?

Here's something else to look out for in the upcoming Super Mario Odyssey VR update. Nintendo has hidden another batch of Cat Mario sprites in the various scenes, and you'll need to look all around in order to find them. Discovering these in VR should be a great new twist on the already-sneaky idea.

Super Mario Odyssey's content update playable without Nintendo Labo's VR Kit

No nee for VR on this one, gang

Good news for those who don't have the Nintendo Labo VR Kit, but want to enjoy the new round of Super Mario Odyssey content. Nintendo has confirmed that this content is playable for all who have a copy of Super Mario Odyssey, whether you have a VR Kit or not. Obviously the content was built around the VR Kit, but at least you can still have some fun!

Super Mario Odyssey getting Theater Mode, which is also Nintendo Labo VR compatible

Super Mari-Whoa

When Super Mario Odyssey gets its free update on April 25th, 2019, one of the new features to be included in Theater Mode. This mode will let players rewatch cut-scenes in the game, including the opening movie. While this mode works without Nintendo Labo VR, you can also put on your Labo VR goggles and enjoy the content that way as well.
